Englewood Schools Superintendent Wendy Rubin said she plans to retire in June of next year.
"Over the next several weeks, the board of education will be determining their process and timeline for selecting a new superintendent who will begin in July 2023," Rubin said in a statement to parents and staff.
Rubin's decision comes just months after the superintendent for the neighboring Littleton Public Schools district announced his plans to retire. Brian Ewert, who served as Englewood's superintendent before joining Littleton in 2015, will also retire June 2023.
During her tenure, Rubin oversaw the construction of five new schools, funded through a $97.5 million bond voters approved in November 2016.
Throughout much of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rubin said the district was able to keep its schools open while building out an "entire online K-12 system in a matter of weeks."
"I challenge anyone to find a district who provided more consistency and support for students throughout the pandemic than what we accomplished in Englewood," Rubin said.
Rubin also touted the district's involvement in policy-making decisions and said it has "a regular presence at the state capitol through advocacy and testimony each legislative session."
"I am looking forward to my final school year in Englewood being one that is characterized by more successes, great and small," Rubin said. "One that will also be grounded in our dedication to our kids, families and one another."
